Today, I’m thankful for a healthy (and full term!) pregnancy. And I’m thankful that little Ella’s ultrasounds and non-stress tests have all been perfect.
Tomorrow, at the recommendation of the Perinatalogist, I’ll be getting induced (at exactly 40 weeks!) and will finally be able to meet our Ella Gail.
This morning, I had the very difficult, heartbreaking task of drafting a sympathy note to a family at our church. On Wednesday they lost their newborn son. Baby W was born with a hole in his heart and wasn’t able to recover from the surgery they performed earlier this week. He was only 10 weeks old.
I can’t imagine what his parents and two older brothers are going through right now. Tomorrow I welcome a beautiful baby girl into the world and on Saturday they will be saying goodbye to a little boy that will forever be in their hearts and on their minds.
